Search Add New Question What type of light does this plant prefer? wikiHow Contributor Bright light will make the plant grow faster, but it can handle low light conditions, it will just grow more slowly. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 14 Helpful 86 Why are my leaves turning yellow, and how do I remove them? wikiHow Contributor It has been over-watered. Unless they are really sick-looking leaves, just leave them. Don’t water so much, and they should perk up again. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 2 Helpful 23 My plant has three little plants sprouting up alongside the big plant. Can these be removed and planted separately? wikiHow Contributor These types of little plants can usually be planted separately. Just make sure they have their own root systems before planting. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 4 Helpful 30 Do the babies grow up to be the size of a normal snake plant? wikiHow Contributor Yes. The snake plants tend to grow slowly, but the plant stalks are usually the same height when fully grown. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 5 Helpful 32 My sansevieria is flowering. Do I need to cut the flower off? wikiHow Contributor No, you don’t, unless you have allergies to the pollen. When it is flowering, the plant is giving off more oxygen, so this is beneficial. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 19 Helpful 65 What do I do when it starts falling over in the pot? Dan Boehlke Horticulturist Either you are watering too much and rotting the roots, or you have it in too dark a location and it isn’t producing enough roots to hold it up. Place in a warm, bright area with no direct sun (or brief morning sun) and very little water, especially in fall and winter. Fertilize (half-strength balanced) only during warm, bright weather in spring and summer. At this time you can water a little more, but always allow to dry between watering. Repot when stems fill the pot. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 3 Helpful 17 Can you plant Sansevieria in a large pot with other succulents and place in sunny position and extreme winds on occasions? wikiHow Contributor Yes, but not with extreme winds. No plant should be subject to winds, even trees get blown over. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 12 Helpful 33 Can I split a snake plant in half and replant it? wikiHow Contributor No, but you can replant it using cuttings. Cut off a single leaf at the base, then cut it into 3 or 4 sections, each at least two fingers wide. Stick the cuttings upright into succulent-friendly potting medium in a small or medium sized pot. New plants will grow from these cuttings. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 28 Helpful 59 What can I do to get my snake plant to bloom? wikiHow Contributor Be patient but don’t get your hopes up, as snake plants rarely bloom. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 7 Helpful 18 the leaves on my sanseveria dried up and fell off, new shoots coming up. Is it OK? wikiHow Contributor The plant might’ve been in shock from over-watering or placement change, it’s regenerating. Be sure to water very little (about once a week), and give indirect sunlight/little sunlight. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 2 Helpful 4 Show more answers

Sansevieria, or the Mother-in-Law’s Tongue / Snake Plant as it’s commonly known is a truly remarkable and striking easy care house plant. It belongs to the family Asparagaceae, native to the tropics of West Africa. It’s an ever increasingly popular indoor plant and much of this has to do with its near indestructible qualities. However the Snake Plant is also desired for its upright and erect leaf habit which fits in to almost all locations in the home from both traditional to modern day settings. It’s bold and clutter free lines make it a very popular and one of the plants of choice for architecture and interior design,.

You can own a mother-in-laws tongue (also known as snake plant) for decades and never know that the plant can produce flowers. Then one day, seemingly out of the blue, you find that your plant has produced a flower stalk. Is this possible? Do Sansevierias produce flowers? And, if they do, why now? Why not more than once a year? Keep reading to learn more.

However, if you want to try getting them it can be tricky, in our experience you only get Sansevieria flowers when you are “cruel”. The plant needs to be so pot bound that there is literally no space for new shoots to emerge out of the soil (this may happen naturally in the center of a congested plant which isn’t fully pot bound yet). You also need to nick the top off some of the leaves which prevents it growing upwards. With absolutely no where left to grow you might get the plant trying to propagate itself by seed, i.e. through the elusive flowers.

The Snake Plant, or Mother-in-Law's Tongue, is one of the most recommended plants for improving air quality. The optimal place to keep this relatively inexpensive and low-maintenance plant is the bedroom, because it converts CO2 into oxygen at night.

After all the attention grabbing and elegance of the previous three Sansevieria varieties, S. hahnii is quite vanilla. Whilst like its cousins in the hardy and interesting to look at stakes, it has less curb appeal. The reason for this is ultimately because it doesn’t grow very high or wide, it’s brilliant however if you don’t have a great deal of space but enjoy the cacti like appearance with the unusual variegation found on S. laurentii. They would be especially useful for a windowsill. Snake Plant Care Instructions

Sansevieria trifasciata has broad strap-like, upright leaves that are dark green and marked with a pattern of wavy cross stripes in a lighter color. The striping gives it the common name of “snake plant”. It is also called mothers-in-law tongue, perhaps because of the sharp point to the leaves. There are also sansevieria that form a short rosette of leaves and these are often called birds nest sansevieria. All sansevieria are very adaptable and easy to care for. Here are some tips on caring for sansevieria.

Be cautious when watering, especially during the winter, better to err on the dry side. Watering is usually a matter of personal judgment. I water my snake plants whenever they seem to need it, about every 2-3 weeks. Few plants should be kept constantly wet, fewer should ever be allowed to suffer from lack of moisture.

Sansevierias propagate easily by division; since most varieties sucker freely, this is usually the preferred method of propagation. Snake plants propagate from leaf cuttings, clumps or rhizome cuttings.

Place the sansevieria plant in the right light. Put the sansevieria plant in an east, west or north windowsill any time of the year. If it’s a south-facing window, place the plant about one foot from the window, to the side, year round. (This advice is directed at the northern hemisphere.) Provide bright fluorescent or other lighting. This will provide enough light so that the sansevieria plants grow well.

This is the most famous and easily recognised, traditionally it was used as a striking background for smaller plants with flowers or ferny foliage. The modern trend in the average home is to keep the plant separate from others and have it standing bold and alone. On occasion in larger areas it is used in mass to create a fence like effect, this is often seen in public places like restaurants, malls/shopping arcades and coffee shops although larger homes might also adopt elements of this style. Trifasciata literally means “three bundles” and this can be seen in the leaf markings of these plants. The laurentii cultivar has leaves which are edged on both sides with solid lines of vertical yellow, in the center there are two different shades of horizontal zig zag green stripes.

Meattle says Mother-in-Law's Tongue is known as “the bedroom plant.” While most plants take away oxygen at night, this one gives off oxygen at night. The plant also filters formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, and benzene from the air. Meattle recommends 6-8 waist-high plants per person for optimal output from this oxygen factory.

Again S. cylindrica has very upright and strong green leaves, although newer growth will bend strongly towards light if in quite a dark location, this means you may end up with more of a wider rather than tall plant overall. The leaves, as you may be able to guess by it’s name, are cylindrical in shape and are incredibly tough. It’s not possible to bend the leaves when they have matured without snapping them. The unusual style alone is enough for some people, but its natural inclination to bend towards light when the new flexible growth forms is exploited by nurseries, the picture on the left shows you how. As the plant has grown, the leaves have been plaited together. Six of the fleshy leaves have been used to create this plait, you can also find more complex and larger designs although they will obviously cost more.
